Luke 12, 39-48

by Fr. Luis A. Zazano

Holy Gospel of JesuChrist according to Saint Luke 12, 39-48

‘But know this: if the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour.’
Peter said, ‘Lord, are you telling this parable for us or for everyone?’ And the Lord said, ‘Who then is the faithful and prudent manager whom his master will put in charge of his slaves, to give them their allowance of food at the proper time? Blessed is that slave whom his master will find at work when he arrives. Truly I tell you, he will put that one in charge of all his possessions. But if that slave says to himself, “My master is delayed in coming”, and if he begins to beat the other slaves, men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk, the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour that he does not know, and will cut him in pieces, and put him with the unfaithful. That slave who knew what his master wanted, but did not prepare himself or do what was wanted, will receive a severe beating. But one who did not know and did what deserved a beating will receive a light beating. From everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required; and from one to whom much has been entrusted, even more will be demanded.

We must be prepared

1) Be prepared. In our journey through life, we must know that life goes by quickly, and you can’t buy time or buy your life. We must live each day as if it were the only one… the first and the last day. This is why you must be prepared in your heart and mind to live every day giving the best of yourself at each and every moment.

2) Loyal servant. You must remember that you have a mission to accomplish. Get busy doing what God has called you to do, there are things you cannot delegate. Learn how to assume your responsibilities and roles. Don’t worry so much about life, rather take care of life.

3) Do not get distracted. Sometimes we do not accept our responsibilities; we neglect them and get distracted with worldly pleasures. All extremes are bad. Do not be afraid to take up your mission, everything has its time. Learn to live by living and remember to give your very best every day.

God bless you in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. And don’t forget: Heaven is our goal.
